Our Jalapeno Paste
When the idea of creating a Jalapeno Paste first came about I wasn’t sure I could do it justice, Jalapenos are my favourite chilli. I love the subtle heat and thick juicy flesh I really didn’t want to mess with that beautiful flavour. So over a season I played with a few ideas and at the end our Jalapeno Paste was born. With the health benefits of chillis becoming more widely recognised it’s no wonder this is a popular product on our list.
The Jalapenos are grown on our little farm . They are grown from our own seed that we have had for many years. Each year I’m planting more and more. Tasmania is not known for it’s ability to grow chillis but believe it our not we can. When growing out in the elements it’s always hard to know what your end produce is going to be. How many chillis you might get or how hot they might be. Because we grow on site I can check them daily and can allow them to sun ripen. This gives us a beautiful red Jalapeno Paste that always seems to sell out before the next seasons are available.
This product is used daily in our house, my new obsession is breakfast eggs with a good dollop of Jalapeno Paste. We love Mexican food, you can add Jalapeno Paste to any recipe either in the cooking or as a condiment on the side. It’s also great on meat platters or ploughmans lunch. The beer lover of the family will also want it added to the grazing board. Or enjoy it on steak or chicken. If you are like my family and love Jalapenos this is one for you
